InstaPay4Care is an optional feature that allows you to choose to have early access to approved pay that you have earned. InstaPay4Care is not an advance.
Here’s how it works:
- Work your scheduled shift and clock out on time after your visit.
- Submit your daily timesheet.
- A popup will appear that says InstaPay Available. To get paid for that visit right away, tap Yes.
- To agree to the Terms and Conditions tap on Caregiver’s Signature.
- Sign and tap Redeem Visits. You are all set! In less than 10 minutes, most of your pay for those visits will appear on your rapid card.
The rest of your pay is withheld for taxes and deductions. This is an estimate of what we expect your payroll taxes and deductions to be based on your previous paychecks. If there is any pay leftover after taxes and deductions, it will be added to the next payroll.
You must clock in and out on time to make a visit eligible for Instapay. There is no extra cost to receive InstaPay.
You can view your visits that are eligible for InstaPay4Care by going to the FreedomCare app home screen, then tapping on My Payroll then InstaPay.
Watch these videos to see how it’s done!
